First Look: Wes Craven's Other New Thriller 'My Soul to Take'
Although any buzz about Wes Craven is now focused purely on Scream 4, the horror filmmaker actually has another new, original horror movie he shot and finished that's finally arriving this fall. It was originally called 25/8 but the title was later changed to My Soul to Take by Universal for the release. We've been covering the film since back in 2008 because Craven said that 25/8 would feature a new "signature villain" in the same vein as Freddy Krueger or Scream's ghostface killer. We've seen some photos of this before, but Bloody-Disgusting got their hands a small set of new photos that give us a tease at what's to come. Read on!
My Soul to Take is about a serial killer who returns to his hometown to stalk seven children who share the same birthday as the date he was allegedly put to rest. Craven explained previously that "it's more a thriller than slasher film, and revolves around a young kid with a very dark past involving his family and his father." The film stars Max Thieriot, Zena Grey and a full line-up of young budding actors. We still have no idea who or what the villain is, but it looks like some demented guy, as you can tell from the hands. Universal will be bringing My Soul to Take to theaters on Halloween week - October 29th. We're expecting a trailer soon!

Wes Craven makes scary films like Custer made good decisions. Ugh. More crap from a so-called, 'Master of Horror.' I guess that makes me a 'Master of Small Paragraphs' now by that standard.

Hope he'll be just as scary as Freddy and Ghostface.
